  2. Aaarghh, what's going on?

    Africa Twin
    Bike has been running fine, and then the other day I mess with some fork extenders, and pushes the cables a bit to get access. Day after I was going on a trip, and I find that she barely starts, and is running so rough, that if I don't keep 1/4 of throttle, the engine dies. Felt a bit like when...
  3. Fuel pump stopped working, give it a few taps and now it works but is leaking!

    The bike wouldn't start this morning and was showing all the signs that the original pump had seized. I came back to the bike tonight and gave the fuel tap a few knocks with a bit of wood and the bike started. Unfortunately the pump in now leaking from a part of the pump hidden by the black...
  4. Facet Pump Noise

    Very strange happening yesterday after doing some work on my fuel supply. To cut a long story short, I replaced my fuel line from the tank to the pump yesterday as the old piping was getting a little tired. Didn't have original @ pipe to go on but used a section of unleaded quality pipe I had in...

    Africa Twin
    Hi lads I recently went on a 1000+ km trip around the mountain range near the border to China, and since I usually run shorter trips, I distinctly noticed, that when I had less than half a tank left, the bike would run rough, with vibrations and a slight loss of power. The Facet pump would...

    Had a strange problem with the bike earlier this evening... Went down to the garage a mile away and got some bits. Then rode the bike for about another few miles.

  10. Fuel pump fatality -- with a twist!

    Africa Twin
    So while riding back from Sweden on wednesday the fuel pump on my AT failed, leaving me out in the rain. Well pants, I thought.

    Africa Twin
    I have just bought a facet pump after having to push my bike half a mile up hill due to fuel pump issues. Grrr. Fitting the pump, there are two wires, black and red, the black has a connector that goes to earth on the frame I presume, the red one goes where? I am sure it is simple but I hate...
  13. facet pump rattling

    Africa Twin
    Hey guys, Just got the facet installed, it is the one sold by rugged roads. The problem is that when the tank nears empty, it starts to rattle. I know that when you fill the tank it goes away, but what happens if you cant fill the tank immediatelly and you have to ride 40-50 miles before a gas...

    Hello people. It's been a while. Hope everyone's enjoying the weather. ? I need some advice. My RD07 has started popping. But it does not happen all the time. Some days it runs perfectly. But when it starts, it mainly pops at slow speeds in traffic. And if I accelerate suddenly. If I get a...

    Africa Twin
    Hi lads I have a 1998 RD07a, and I recently went on a ~350km ride around the vietnamese countryside, and all started out fine, and we were humming along. As we went, I noticed the bike was vibrating more and more, and on the final 50km, it was so rough, that I almost feared it would cut out if...
  19. Varadero fuel pump

    Varadero
    It's a well known achilles heel of the AT, but does the Vara suffer from the same problem? Do I need to keep an eye out for my fuel pump going down? If it does, is the prefered solution to put in a facet pump? It all seems fine at the moment - I'm just thinking of the future. BTW, I've searched...
